SPD & Jessie - Backroom Tings

 

This is an absolute TRACK, if you know you know. I've always been into my garage music since a young age, I was brought up around it. It's had a massive impact on the way i produce music today. Can't beat some nice tight garage drums.

Pearson Sound - Untitled

 

Pearson Sound is one of my FAVOURITE producers & this track is quality from start to finish. I remember closing the basement at Sankeys in Ibiza with this track, it shook the whole basement! Will never forget that moment. So nicely structured & well produced, David Sullivan is a legend.

Queen - Another One Bites the Dust

 

Now when i was growing up this was all my dad used to play, Queen. I remember I must have been about 7 years old dancing around my kitchen to this track. That bassline grabs you – it's so clever & catchy. I still dance around the kitchen to this now!

Daft Punk – Around the World

 

Wow, daft punk. What musical geniuses they are. French duo from Paris that wore helmets. But this track is one of my all time favourites. "Around The World" is is what got me into that electronic sound.

Sister Sledge - Lost In Music

 

Now this track has a huge impact on my life & my journey towards my career. The lyrics in this song just relate to my life so much, "We're lost in music/Feel so alive I quit my nine to five/We're lost in music" - This track keeps me focused, If I'm having a down day & need a little boost this is my go to track.
